For version 0.6.0 and on I haven't yet had a case of changing numbers

Please let me know if you hear anymore about this.

The <PRT> button should already do this.

To put it on the homework page you can do this(I have included all
possible names for completness sake):

<script type="loncapa/perl">
   $firstname=&EXT('user.environment.firstname').' ';
   $middlename=&EXT('user.environment.middlename').' ';
   $lastname=&EXT('user.environment.lastname').' ';
   $generation=&EXT('user.environment.generation').' ';
   $nickname=&EXT('user.environment.nickname').' ';
Plainname is $firstname $middlename $lastname $generation <br />
Username is $username <br />
User supplied nickname is $nickname <br />

If you only are using individual problem files you should be able to
use this code in the .sty file definition I sent out before

It you are using .page files, you could create a header.html file that
is basically to above and include it as the first resource in the
.page file.
